This 69′ Pontiac GTO Is Being Controlled By An iPod

I used to be a Pontiac enthusiast myself.  I drove a blue 1995 Pontiac Grand Am in high school.  I removed the grill and sprayed with chrome paint too.  But I’ve got nothing on Dave Phipps.  He truly has “Pontiac Excitement” (Pontiac’s motto circa 2002).

Phipps took his 69′ Pontiac GTO, which he bought for $400 and replaced the wiring so it would work with his iPod Touch through a RedEye IR system.  He can start the car, rev the engine, open doors, control the radio, and raise/drop the top using his iPod.  That takes some serious skills.  [TUAW]
